Fancy being Santa’s little helper?

AN annual Christmas fund-raising campaign in aid of children has been launched.

The NSPCC’s Letter from Santa project is calling on people to become Santa’s Little Helpers by sending someone special a magical letter for a suggested donation of £5.

Each letter is personalised with the child’s name and confirms that Santa and his sleigh will be stopping off in their home town to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. There is also a chance to order an extra special letter for newborns, with a Baby’s First Christmas letter.
